And wasn’t it, but?
Last night’s Golden Globes offered more than just a sartorial nod to women and it was one of the best events yet.
Third time’s a charm hosts Amy Poehler and Tina Fey were perfect at the helm, poking fun at the Sony hack and Amal Clooney’s husband and throwing serious shade Cosby’s way.
Their palatable feminism was backed up by the presenters and winners alike and all-in-all, the evening was a rather enjoyable ride.
In saying that the conversation had moved from how women looked, here follows my fashion recap on exactly that: how the women looked.
In my defence, I want to keep this positive and wherever possible, centred squarely upon the frock.
So here it ’tis, and set to follow across several posts, the A Crowded Hour Golden Globes 2015 Fashion Recap and Fashion Award Winners.

Sienna Miller – My favourite. Plus everyone else’s. She was wearing Miu Miu and nailed every part of it. Miller has that rare ability of wearing the be-Jesus out of clothes as opposed to being well and truly worn by the clothes. She elevates that dress above the feminine and right into the fabulously unrivalled. Not only was it the night’s best example of a deep V-neck, it also featured the best floral, the best intricate detail, and one of the most refreshing examples of what can be done with a skirt which falls from the waist but beneath which it would be impossible to fit a crouching 12-year-old.
Maggie G – Please note, also in Miu Miu. I find her décolletage breathtakingly sexy and those bodice darts are everything Anne Hathaway’s 2013 Oscars dress was not. The sash waist, the column fit, the hint of pockets (everyone loves a dress pocket) and that champagne/blush shade, combine for a winning formula.
